Did you register on the second screen?

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...

Would you guys say that Source Direct is the best setting for this player if all you're playing are Blu-Ray discs on a 1080p/24 display?

There is no difference between auto and source direct on my display. Switching between both options doesn't do anything.

If your display properly supports 1080p24 (ie it doesn't have to be forced into 24fps mode), then for Blu-ray there's no difference. Source Direct is really only different for DVDs and lower than 1080p resolution content. It will switch the output resolution and timing to match the source, so (for example) DVDs are output at 480i. Handy if you've got a good video processor (either standalone, like a Lumagen, or built into your display).

See what an anamorphoscopic lens can do, see movies the way they were meant to be seen

Since I never watch DVD's, I will leave the player in Source Direct.

BDP-05FD and problems with X-men: Days of Future Past

X-men: Days of Future Past. Just tried it on my BDP-05FD (firmware vs 1.72) and it never gets past the 20th Century Fox fanfare. Completes the fanfare then goes to black screen with BD-ROM BDMV displayed on the the player. Tried to update the firmware but got a WRT failure message, despite repeated attempts. Very frustrated and disappointed kids! Has anyone discovered a workaround to get to the menu on this disc?

My BDP-51FD had no issue playing Days of Future Past. Have you tried using a lens cleaner on your player? My player would not load certain discs and after cleaning the lens, it has played every single disc I've thrown at it.
